  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. For the fig filling, combine the soaked figs, cinnamon, and vanilla in a food processor and blend until you don’t have big pieces of figs anymore.
  3. For the dough, in a large bowl combine all ingredients, adding the applesauce and gelled flax egg last.
  4. Knead together and let sit for 5 minutes before rolling the dough out between two Silpats or parchment paper. (Rolled to about the size of the mats)
  5. Cut the dough in half and spread the fig mixture, about 1 inch wide, on one of the cut halves of dough.
  6. Fold the dough over to cover the fig filling, shape and flatten the top of the log smooth and pinch the dough seam of the log closed.
  7. Repeat this process for the other half of the dough so you have 2 fig newton logs.
  8. Now cut the logs into 1-2 inch bars and place them on a lined baking sheet.
  9. Bake the bars for 15 minutes, let cool before enjoying.
